20 Sexy Shots From Dore Alley 2017, San Francisco’s LGBTQ Kink Fair (NSFW)

Be first to like this.

Make no mistake, San Francisco has increasingly become a playground for the rich where property values are so high that the residents who helped give the city all its character can’t afford to stick around. Despite that, many brilliant queer artists, kinksters and business people still inhabit its neighborhoods. Twice a year, they (and similar folks from around the world) unite for a shamelessly brazen celebration of queer kink and sexuality called the Up Your Alley Fair or just Dore Alley, something which happened yesterday.

The first Up Your Alley Fair started as an AIDS fundraiser in San Francisco’s leather district in 1985, but it moved to Dore Alley two years later and has remained there to this day.

Let’s enjoy some sights from the Up Your Alley fair!

The crowd was massive, friendly, but bustling. It could take a while to walk from one side of the street to the other.

They had lots of hot dancers on boxes as well as porn stars and exhibitionists showing off their kink in various places.

Some participants invited abuse by dressing up as Donald Trump or signs that said, “humiliate me”

Others just wore sexy harnesses and revealing underwear (much to our delight).

The fair also invites attendees to try their hand at various kink — like ropes, puppy play and flogging — and some of their assistants and experts are seriously sexy.

It’s a good place to hang, whether you’re a veteran kinkster or just curious.

Though it’s important to remember why such LGBTQ and sex-positive events exist.
